FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION


Granting of Request for Early Termination of the Waiting Period

    Section 7A of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18a, as added by Title II 
of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, requires

persons contemplating certain mergers or acquisitions to give the 
Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant Attorney General advance 
notice and to wait designated periods before consummation of such 
plans. Section 7A(b)(2) of the Act permits the agencies, in individual 
cases, to terminate this waiting period prior to its expiration and 
requires that notice of this action be published in the Federal 
Register.
    The following transactions were granted early termination of the 
waiting period provided by law and the premerger notification rules. 
The grants were made by the Federal Trade Commission and the Assistant 
Attorney General for the Antitrust Division of the Department of 
Justice. Neither agency intends to take any action with respect to 
these proposed acquisitions during the applicable waiting period.
